In addition to Miami, another American city is seeking to become a hub for Bitcoin. The mayor of Jackson, Tennessee, said that his city is exploring cryptocurrency wage conversion and Bitcoin mining to add cryptocurrency to the balance sheet.
The mayor of Jackson, Tennessee, Scott Conger shared his plan on Twitter to make his city a Bitcoin hub. He stated this week: “Jackson TN is a leader in leading the adoption of cryptocurrencies.”
“The local government will lead the adoption of Bitcoin and, together with it, trigger a new industrial revolution with a sustainable economy, which will help narrow the gap between the rich and the poor,” the mayor tweeted on Wednesday. “Using average costs in crypto assets (such as cryptocurrencies) is a way to bridge the gap between rich and poor and empower people economically.”
Mayor Conger used BTC, LTC and ETH tags and tweeted on Tuesday:
We are exploring salary conversion for employees. What’s even more exciting-we are seriously exploring mining Bitcoin to add to our balance sheet.
The mayor also changed his profile picture on Twitter to include laser eyes. This meme means that anyone who wears eyes will focus their attention on the rise in the price of Bitcoin to $100,000. Politicians, celebrities, and investors all participated and turned their attention to their profile images, including former U.S. Bitcoin Senator Cynthia Lummis (Cynthia Lummis).
At the same time, a similar effort is being made in Miami, Florida, where Mayor Francis Suarez is trying to make his city a Bitcoin hub. City councillors voted for the mayor’s resolution to allow salaries, taxes and fees to be paid in BTC. The city also supports efforts to make Bitcoin an acceptable currency in order to potentially invest in the national treasury.
